SWFChan tech.

I'm considering adding a system to my existing website that thumbnails SWFs. However, the only way that appears to be viable is to start up a browser from the application server and take a picture of the SWF while it runs. My server is headless (I.E. it barely has the ability to run a desktop, and I turned that off to save resources), so that isn't a possibility.

I've looked at Ming, but that only creates swfs. ffmpeg-php is a possibility, but it only handles embedded FLVs. I'm running out of options.

How does SWFchan make snapshots of their flash movies?

I had to do something like this for 7chan. I figured SWFchan used some windows only solution, so I wrote a quick project in Flex that would take a flash file via flashvars, grab the number of frames, divide it by 2, and output the frame to the canvas as BitmapData. When an swf file is uploaded, it runs a shell script spawns the standalone linux flashplayer in a Xvfb server, takes a screenshot and crops out all the unimportant stuff using Imagemagick.

Unfortunately it suffers the same limitation as swfchan: if a movie is pure actionscript this method won't work because these movies typically have only 1 or 2 frames, neither of which have any usable data that can be converted into BitmapData.

Another option, if the above fails, is to take the swf, play it for x amount of seconds, then take a screenshot. This should help for the many cases where depending on framecount won't work.

Neat! I hadn't noticed that 7chan now has screenshots for its flash files. Looking stylish.

The solution I have in my head involves your last line. Was thinking of letting the flash file actually startup in memory and then seek to various places for the screenshots without unloading it, which will produce better results than jumping directly to a frame in the time line, take a screen, quit, and repeat. It should be fail-safe except maybe for a few rare ActionScript frames that could get stuck in an endless loop, but then it's just a matter to take another frame or fallback on the old dll.

The link to this thread from the collections pages still tries to direct people to the .org domain. Still haven't heard what happened to that domain. Anyways, if you could change that url to this one in the meantime that'd be great for people who want to give feedback for the collections system!

Done, thanks!

Little suggestion here:
It happens from time to time that I come across the fact that I already added a specific version of a flash, but I cannot easily find it in my collection. It is mostly due to the fact that I renamed them to something original, maybe a name that wasn't even posted before and isn't in the archive.
So when I try to add it again, it obviously doesn't work. One way to rectify that would be that if you add it a second time, it overwrites the current entry.
I would much more prefer it though, if maybe the link that says "This flash is already featured in the following collection: X" links directly to the cell within the collection, or maybe contains the name in the url.

As some of you may have noticed a great deal of ads has disappeared from the bottom of the site recently. Apparently something about site's with porn not being allowed. This means that swfchan suddenly isn't bearing it's own weight any more, new ads are needed since the single one at the top isn't enough. I liked the old ones since they were pretty clean and rotated a lot. Not just the same old penis/dating/sex ads that the top one always gets.

What I'm however thinking is that I'll just go with the same advertisement place as the top ad comes from since that's easiest. These ads are however not based on a per-view plan like the old bottom ones were, so there's little point in filling the bottom with a million of these ads. Nor do I real ...

Search results on the second URL starts showing WIKI:0 on page 80, meaning no archived threads for the flash. At 100 results per page that comes to a little less than 8000 flashes with archived threads.

Accounting for swfchan's downtimes and for flashes posted before threads started being saved on 22oct2008 (and that were never re-posted after that date), it's not unreasonable to assume that no more than approximately 10k unique flashes has ever been uploaded to /f/ since it was founded back in 19feb2004.

It's a given that swfchan has more flashes than were posted to /f/ because one can upload much larger flashes here; still that's quite funny to think that a collection of a mere 2,000 flashes could account for 20% of the unique flashes ever posted to /f/ during its lifetime.

Okay. I have talked with Weebl and after some file swapping and some digging on his part he eventually got all but the last chapter over to me.

Included is his reply stating that he could not find the last chapter. Unfortunately that one seems to be lost to time unless someone else has retained it for some reason: maybe a shady games website ripped it in its entirety off of Weebl's site or something, who knows. I did try to look for those myself but yielded no results. Remember, you're not looking for just a swf file but an xml one too.

suggest features for swfchan even if they're unreasonable

1. add a button or something that checks if a flash you are viewing the archive is part of a visible collection
2. assuming that the flashes are scanned/decompiled when firstspotted, download any flashes that load through a Loader object or are fully hyperlinked
3. data dump: allow other people to download chunks of the database so they can scan it for metadata if they so desire.

Would be nice if there was an option (for example in the bottom corner where the cookie settings are) for the main page to default to the normal-thread-order instead of random when you follow a link to boards.

Works for me. The link DOES expire after a while, so hotlinking is only possible for flashes on .org.
The functions are on both domains. The T/W are buttons on the html wrapper here (yes, slightly less functionality) and the details buttons on the GET page of .com.
Works pretty much the same if you just want to stretch the flash. >>72354
Still not sure what you are up to, but the bg color depends on the flash itself and your browser and only the wrapper changes it to black I think. ...

As far as I can tell this is the only major Flash website left that isn't ruined by copywrite takedowns and content restrictions (like Newgrounds is). I haven't dug into the other flash preservation projects, but I doubt they have the same level of content freedom as this site.

Does the database get handed over to somebody if something happens to you? This website has a ton of history that I would hate to see lost. Sorry if you have already answered this question a bunch of times. I just became worried after suddenly went down a few days ago.

All flashes from are on swfchan, unfortunately they were just named a number, for example swf

I have a text file with 5185 of their flashes mapped to names and filesizes in case I want to parse it to make a collection some day. I think that's all the flashes they had, although the highest numbered flash on their site was .swf (it's mute). It's possible that 197 numbers were skipped/deleted.

There were a surprising amount of z0r flashes not on swfchan, have been adding a few to the archive every day for the past several months in order to not flood the front page and there are still over 2000 of them to go.

in the future you can upload flashes you find yourself:

when you view a flash on just press CTRL+S to save it to your hard disk, then you can upload it here.
if that doesn't work (because for example the flash has focus and consumes the keyboard events) select File > Save Page As at the top of your your browser (press Alt if you don't see "File").

save as type "Web page, complete" if you get a html download (could need to retry the download once for some reason, at least in firefox). then the html AND the swf file is saved, look in a subfolder named something like "yourfilename_files".

The clock is ticking - What to use now and after everyone shuts it?

Some flashes need internet access or at least non-local access so the projector is not always the solution. Besides it is cumbersome compared to simply using a browser.

So what to do? Any browsers that will continue supporting flash or a extension?

Besides, Adobe will cease the download, so a archive of the projectors and .swc should also be in order.

at least get one of v30, v20, etc.; like prev15 was able to build a standalone exe of a swf

if you make an interesting flash and it features (only) real porn, then it's fine

not really the place to ask, but ... I don't think you can
you could post them to filehosts, but not really archive them here
the example you showed has 0 threads, which means it wasn't posted on any board, but rather directly into the archive by the archive scraper
that's the only way, unless Ants does it himself your only chance is go look for a site that gets archived automatically and then try to post it there

Ouch, there are too many things wrong with your statement.
Firstly, you cannot just compress swfs and that's it. Sure you can and should, but the mileage depends on what it is. To be short, videos don't compress well because they are already very compressed so to speak. You won't gain much less filesize.
Secondly, you cannot "convert a video to swf". SWF is not a video format, but rather a container format (not made for videos). You CAN convert a video to FLV and put that into a swf, but it's WAY worse than MP4 and MKV most of the time.
Thirdly, don't.
People don't need any more videos as swfs. That's not what swf is for. Don't bother.
Lastly, what I rather thought about how to save filesize from actual flashes is, for example ...

More threads per page

I just changed the number of threads per page on the overview list from 50 to 200 and from 30 to 200 on /show/, /fap/, /gg/ and /swf/. What do you think? I figured this will make people more likely to discuss older flashes since they might not feel as old anymore (they are on the first page after all) and it helps to discover them to begin with since most people don't even contemplate traversing that dark abyss we call the second page.

New overview page

Threads are now always listed in the correct order. Instead of there being both a random and normal list there's now a section below the one and only list with a couple of random threads.

The recommendations from the main archive that used to be shown on the .net front page have been merged into the bottom of the overview page. Until further notice the .net front page simply redirects to the overview page.

Random threads and recommendations do not show up on page 2+ of the overview. It's now also possible to access the boards quickly by typing for example in your browser's address bar and you'll be redirected to the correct URL.

So did anyone else enjoy the random overview page when it was at the top? I know when it was on I saw quite a few threads that I had forgotten about or missed.

Maybe this will give recommendations more visibility. I barely looked at them regularly before.

idk, they function basically the same as the random page
also, I didn't mind random order, but it was kinda nuisance to always have to click normal oder (or use a bookmark)
this way recommendations maybe start to have a meaning again, as probably a lot more anons will see them at the bottom rather than the .net, good move imo

Where do we go now?

So with flash being cancelled and all it seems like animators are abandoning the format. I'm aware of webms taking off since that came out, but is there any alternative interactive format or is that pretty much dying with flash?

I'm aware that things like unity web player and old fashioned exes exist, but those aren't and never will be a widespread indie freeware staple like flash is, and I sure don't know any site like this that would archive all that stuff. I guess you can try to hunt individuals down on their private sites, or whatever art hosting site they decide to upload stuff to, if they even do that. Even then those almost never have interactive stuff, and animations are rare.

I'll just really miss independent animators putting out interactive stuff, not just porn, and webms while popular are almost exclusively sfm and blender porn.

Towards the end of the year I plan to start suggesting people to move away from mainstream browsers if they would like to keep using flash online. I'm not sure which browser to recommend, probably Waterfox because I talked with the project leader and he said that he'll try his best to keep flash working over the years.

There are other browsers like for example Pale Moon/Basilisk or SeaMonkey where flash will keep working as well but the new Waterfox will be based on a more recent version of Firefox which would help people to make the switch if everything looks and works the same. The newer layout engine compared to old Firefox is much snappier as well, it's not a huge deal but very noticeable if you zoom in/out with CTRL+scrollwheel on a ...

Funnily enough, you're right, epic store trailers show up blank for some reason.
I've been using xul based palemoon now for months and I have come across maybe 2 oddities until now, everything else seems to work fine ESPECIALLY in conjuncture with flash. No annoying popups to enable or anything.
Steam trailers seem to work fine, maybe they will fix the video tags for epic store, maybe not, I don't care but it could obviously be a turnoff for the average joe.

Also, I mean still, yeah using two browsers is unusual but if someone has some affinity for flash I bet he can be arsed enough to have a different browser he can click on to browse here or /f/. It really does not impact anything (maybe the install order to have one default ...

>Adobe doesn't even publish the old format into the public domain.
I think their hands were tied in this respect because of patenting issues

It might be useful to inform people about how to change your useragent if you are planning on having a message at the top. I've run into at least 6 places that force newish useragents (i.e. try to only get specific browsers); megaupload and slack were among them so I think it's possible that some people would try it and get hung up on the idea because of certain sites if they didn't know.

Help Saving Local Flash Games (On Computer)

So I've downloaded a few games like Dragon Bride, and Erotical Night and a few JSK games. They saved just fine, but suddenly now they aren't saving data at all. I'm wondering how to fix this problem. All the other sources keep talking about saving the games on the browser, I need help with saving them when they are already downloaded on your computer.

I think they just never wanted people to exert such control over that, and if they wanted they still could. Like games and steam wouldn't let you export save data with a button ingame but you could still just navigate to the folder yourself.
It is magic that should only happen behind the scenes. Users fiddling around with sol files from the actual flash would have probably been a real security issue.

I have a shortcut to the sol files folder in my flash folder and don't switch anything around that often that it would really do me any good if there was a faster option.

>>Anonymous  18jan2020(sa)00:24  No.73294 
Maybe just a little heads up about the topic, because I just recently combed through the JSK collection and came about two facts that are relevant to this and kinda make me think that >>73268 is ultimately right.

If you have a filename specific file and your path is too long (too many folders in folders), then flash seems to give the file a unique identifier (scrambled text) and store the .sol file in there as a generic 0001.sol or something like that.
Makes it extremely hard to judge files, the only real thing you can go by is the date, as it should be created the same time you played the game.
It is really lenient though, tho funnily it happened to me when I stored the files in a folder and some worked because they had short names, but when the name exceeded a few words, it triggered this phenomena.
So it probably won't happen to you frequently. ...

>>Anonymous  21jan2020(tu)03:40  No.73345 
Note to linux users, you can find where your .sol files are located by running find -name *.sol

You should try it, there could be some interesting files there:
myfedloans -- no idea that they used flash for anything.
youtube -- didn't they ditch their flash player around 2014?
analytics.sol -- ominous, I think I'll delete that one it didn't say where it was like the other ones, maybe it was google?

Linked the two fan edits in the comment of BFJ.swf in the collection, thanks for the tip! I know I have a "Fan-made stuff" section but it feels better to have smaller edits in the comment next to the original.

I notice the You'll_vomit was never updated to include a link to the edit -8 himself made: ight.swf
>>Anonymous  14jan2020(tu)12:40  No.73226 
I've added it but won't mention that -8 made that edit because I can't verify that he did, so I'm not sure he really made it. Seems kinda lazy to just remove the dick. The old edit I already had linked to is superior to this one because it didn't just remove the dick but made the character topless and also added pussy lips.

After I wrote my posts I found an old copy of the sothink exe2swf on my disk and tried it on the exe he linked. Unfortunately the game used multiple swfs inside the exe so they wouldn't work even if he posted them.
>>Anonymous  3jan2020(fr)23:16  No.73088 
Very understandable, but uploading them is still good, especially when they aren't even on waybackmachine anymore.
Just put them under consistent naming and people can understand to download them all and play locally.

Trying to find a flash

There was a flash on /fap/ that had some MILF. There was thunder or some shit in the background and you were in a room that had clickable items to the left or right. One put her in a costume as Morrigan from Darkstalkers. I've searched keywords and tags but I haven't found anything.
